Botch - Announce First Shows Since Reunion

Botch surprised everyone by releasing their first song in over 20 years, and now the reunion is cementing itself with a round of shows in February 2023.

Brian Cook posted the following: "Over the last twenty years, I’ve routinely had friends, fans, journalists, and promoters ask “so when is Botch getting back together?” For me, the answer has always been easy: never. I was proud of our legacy and honoring it meant leaving it in the past.

"Over the years, I eventually had to acknowledge that my bandmates didn’t necessarily feel the same way. And maybe the consistent questions about a reunion meant there wasn’t closure for our audience either. At some point saying “never” felt less like a triumph and more like me standing in the way of other peoples’ happiness.

"That said, this isn’t a selfless endeavor. A reunion is only respectable if the members involved are still emotionally connected to the music. While it wasn’t originally intended to be a Botch song, working together on “One Twenty Two” served as a reminder of the passion we held for the things we built together. If I cared so much about the music, why was I withholding it? If I really wanted to look forward, maybe I needed to settle up with the past.

"So here we are. We got a couple of shows for ya. Tix on sale tmrw. I’m turning off notifications and ignoring my inbox. If we’re friends irl and we’ve talked about reunion stuff, I’m sure you’ll understand the radio silence. Love y’all and thanks for givin’ a hoot."
